Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Thirteen minute Slipknot!

Robword recently recomended this show as his personal favorite. Its obvious I dont listen to 1976 enough because I did not remember just how hot this show was.

Tito will be psyched because of the first-time performances of Might As Well, Lazy Lightning, Supplication, Samson and The Wheel. I dig it for the tremendous Let It Grow and thirteen-plus minute Slipknot!

Excellent recomendation Robword...

6/3/76 - Paramount Theatre

Might As Well, Cassidy, Row Jimmy, Looks Like Rain, They Love Each Other, Lazy Lightning, Supplication, Candyman, The Music Never Stopped, Scarlet Begonias, Dancin' In The Streets Samson & Delilah, Crazy Fingers-> Wharf Rat-> Let It Grow-> Drums-> It Must Have Been The Roses-> Around & Around-> Help On The Way-> Slipknot!-> Franklin's Tower-> One More Saturday Night, E: The Wheel

Okay back to it...must admit, the first set didn't do as much for me as the second. LiG and CFingers were perhaps the best of those; overall, it reminded me a lot of the times I saw them during this time period. The set list is very similar to some of those Winterland shows I saw from 76-78, and in another surprise, the work that Donna did was not nearly as upsetting as it had been for me in the past. I would say that she really adds something to the Cassidy on this one--and that song is one of Bob's that I much prefer to LL or LLR. Somehow, for me, Bob doesn't make the transition well from OOne ethos, or the cowboy and blues tunes of an upbeat nature (M&MU, BIODTL, etc) to these soul searching love songs. But, that's just me.

Again, thanks for the tip, CLIFF & Rob...tito too.

Now you're talking...great one.

Here is one of my all time favorites, though it is entirely for the poetry of it, and Jerry's voice while "reading," rather than the song, which I liked, but they never did it enough for me to appreciate it. It is short and sweet, and I don't think needs much by the way of explanation and I would be the last to explanate it anyhow.

Just read it cause I like it...or not.

Boots were of leather
A breath of cologne
Her mirror was a window
She sat quite alone

All around her
the garden grew
scarlet and purple
and crimson and blue

She came and she went
and at last went away
The garden was sealed
when the flowers decayed

On the wall of the garden
a legend did say:
No one may come here
since no one may stay

It's a bit Forbidden Garden territory isn't it? I'm glad Phil decided to revive it - as he did several of the old songs.

Has Phil being doing this one?!? Shocking--but does an old fart some good. Thanks for the insight. Didn't know that was the case.

Cool.

I'll scarce hear a word said against the man these days.

Well, thought I had the place to myself...was following the Prime Directive, but lo and behold the kids came home unexpectedly as Track Six was playing...awkward...embarrassing...and I quote: "Dad, I think you need to go back to the Kazoos--they would really help this song!"

Assume you all recognize that it was the infamous Lazy Lightning...sorry, but I had to cut off the experiment at that point.

Will attempt to get back to the 13' Slipnot when I can do it privately.

Pretty funny though--they give me a lot of shit for being such an obsessionist when it comes to the boys...but they have their limits. Makes an Old Man proud.

If you can't do a job and complete it, maybe you should just disappear.
